Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Saturday, October Herald----------------------- Family Development problems caught by screening GUELPH. Ont. (CP) A total of 209. or about 16 per cent, of pre-kindergarten youngsters screened this year by the Wellington-Dufferin- Guelph health unit were found to have physical, emotional or social problems significant enough to affect their learning potential. The screening was done in a combined health survey and voluntary questionnaire which were given to parents with pre-kindergarten youngsters registering for school this fall. Dr. B. T. Dale, executive di- rector and medical officer of health for the health unit, said the survey was "designed and planned to prepare the child for his new experience so that he might be admitted in op- timum health and his parents made aware of any known or potential educational hazard." Of the 209 who required fol- low-up treatment, 82 have physical disabilities such as asthma or hearing, sight or speech problems. 79 have emotional problems which may hinder their ability in a classroom and 48 have problems related to social needs. A follow-up visit by a public health nurse to the homes of the 209 was carried out so that the problem could be discuss- ed with parents and a program could be started to help the child. "Some of these conditions require correction in the home by parents with minimal help and suggestions from the public health said Dr. Dale. "But more serious con- ditions require the services of a family physician or other specialists." The health survey dealt with tour essential areas of a child's physical tal, nutrition, vision and hear- ing and speech. The survey revealed several facts about the health of the children: per cent had never visited a dentist, while another 28 per cent had not seen a dentist in more than a year. 12 per cent brushed their teeth three times a day. per cent ate little or no breakfast. high percentage of those with eye problems were suf- fering from amblyopia or lazy eve.

At one time I disliked cats, believing them to be pretty in- sipid little beasts. However that was before the Duke took over our house; lock, stock and refrigerator. Insipid the Duke is not. It took him a while to lick the family into shape, but now it is obvious to even casual ac- quaintances who runs the Jamieson household. He's laid down certain ground rules. No car rides, no fish (except only one brand of cat food, no four legged intruders and double helpings of Kentucky fried chicken whenever it's on the menu. On the other hand, he can be fairly long suffering for a tyrant. He patiently submits to being decked out in doll clothes and wheeled around in a buggy. I have seen him ig- nominiously picked up by his tail, without protest. And silent and uncomplaining, he has been smuggled into schoolrooms, movie houses and beds hidden under a coat or sweater. In all honesty, I must admit he would not win any populari- ty contest around the block. A while back, he used to drop in at a house down the road for a snack and a gossip with the cat in residence. But one day, for some incomprehensi- ble reason, the Duke took a large, enthusiastic bite out of the owner's hand. I talked myself into believ- ing it was an accident, until he turned around and bit her arm. To add insult to injury, he visited again a few days later, was courteously made welcome and invited to dine then threw up all over the carpet. Another home from home where he is no longer welcome is across our back alley, where our neighbor left a chicken to cool on her kitchen counter. The Duke wandered in, figured it was a sitting duck, and got the bird! Even our relatives have HADASSAH'S BIG SALE Thursday, Nov. 1st, 9 a.m. BETH ISRAEL SYNAGOGOUE 914-15th St. S.

THAWING CAKE To thaw a frosted cake, un- wrap it and place on a rack at room temperature. become somewhat dis- enchanted with our cat. The first time the Duke saw my mother in a fur coat, his hair stood on end. Tail twitching with rage and screaming insults, he leapt up and took a fair sized chunk out of her anatomy. Mother was not happy es- pecially when, in an effort to defend his lordship, our children insinuated the coat was dead cat, probably the Duke's brother. His reputation as the local swinger takes a lot of living up to, and he frequently staggers home with an ear that needs stitching back into place or an abcess ready for lancing, which means, of course, a trip to his bitter enemy, the vet, for minor repairs. Local girl finalists in contest Norma Collins of Lethbridge was one of 15 finalists and their mothers flown to Montreal as guests of the Singer Company of Canada. She was chosen as a finalist in a cross-Canada teen sewing contest sponsored by the com- pany and will spend a four-day weekend in Montreal, as well as having received engraved scissors and a new sewing machine for being a regional winner. While in the east, the girls will take part in specially planned city tours, shopping sprees, make-up and groom- ing counselling sessions, photography sessions and will attend receptions and dinners in their honor. On Monday they will model the outfits they have made at a grand final judging and three queens will be named. Each will receive a cash prize and an engraved silver rose bowl. Wot's the Buzz?
